Make breakfast better!
Our friends at Nestle Cereals we are working to help make breakfast better, that’s why their green banner cereals contain a whole lot of whole grain, are a good source of fibre and with no artificial colours or flavourings!
But why is this important?
Well, breakfast fuels the body after the overnight fast and kick-starts metabolism¹. Children who eat breakfast tend to perform better academically, and are more likely to stay alert and behave better in school².
It’s widely agreed that a healthy breakfast should include: 1 portion of a grain based food, ideally made with whole grain, 1 portion of dairy, minimum 1 portion of fruit and an optional protein source. Your breakfast should be 20-25% of your daily energy intake³.
What are the benefits of having cereal as part of your breakfast?
Recent studies showed that regular cereal eaters tend to: have less consumption of fat sodium and cholesterol, skip breakfast less, have higher intakes of fibre, whole grain and vitamins and minerals. These people are also more physically active, have healthier lifestyles and have a more balanced diet including more fruits and more milk⁴.
